I'm 16 years old and i want to buy a car. I'm intersted in buying a 1985 635csi for 4500. I found this car http://losangeles.craigslist.org/sfv/cto/4032419555.html and i wanted to know if its a good idea buying it. I've seen the interior and exterior, which is perfect, but i haven't seen it run. So I'm wondering if its a good idea to buy it.

THE CAR LOOKS TO BE NICE

HOWEVER THE "SALVAGE TITLE" PART IS NOT APPEALING

IF YOU HAVE NOT INVESTIGATED THIS.......IT COULD MEAN THAT MR. CAR HAS SUSTAINED MORE THAN 2/3 MORE DAMAGE IN COST, THAN IT'S WORTH AT THE TIME......THE INSURANCE COMPANY DEEMED IT SORTA UNUSABLE

I'VE BEEN INVOLVED WITH A FEW PEOPLE WHO WANTED TO BUY A SALVAGE TITLE VEHICLE.....IT MIGHT BE A GOOD THING IF THE PRICES WERE A "REAL DEAL"...........

....................SINCE YOU MUST SORTA EAT THE FACT THAT IT WILL BE NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO GET FINANCING, AND I'VE BEEN TOLD THE INSURANCE COMPANIES FROWN ON THEM......THEY CAN NEVER BE ISSUED A REGULAR TITLE

SO........IF YOU WANNA RESALE IT, IT'S MORE THAN LIKELY GONNA HAVE TO BE A CASH SALE

NO MATTER WHAT YOU ARE TOLD.....HOW WONDERFUL IT IS.....WHAT HAS BEEN DONE.........IT'S STILL A "SALVAGE TITLE"

I RECOMMEND THAT YOU YOU INVESTIGATE THE PROS AND CONS OF THE WHOLE DEAL, AND IN YOUR REGION, BEFORE YOU JUMP ON IT..............AS I ONLY INVESTIGATED JUST ENOUGH TO TELL MY FRIENDS, I WOULDN'T DO IT MYSELF UNLESS THE PRICE WAS A UNBELIEVABLE BARGAIN.........THIS ONE SORTA AIN'T IN THAT CATEGORY, IN MY BOOK

.........ON TOP OF ALL OF THAT...........WHAT SORTA DRIVABILITY ISSUES MIGHT IT HAVE A LITTLE LATER DOWN THE ROAD???

I JUST LOOKED AT A FEW RIGS ON "AUTO TRADER" THAT MIGHT COMPARE

..........THEY HAD "CLEAR TITLE" AND WERE THEREABOUTS IN THE SAME PRICE RANGE....GIVE OR TAKE

SORRY.....I JUST CAN'T RECOMMEND "A CAR" AT ALL
